Hyperbole is absolutely the worst thing in the entire universe. It's at least a hundred billion trillion times worse than anything else you can name. It's even that many times worse than anything else you can't name.

Not sure if you are asking me to define this word for you or whether you are actually trying to suggest that they are actually being sensible in describing '60s hippies as 'Satan worshipers' who literally worshiped the actual Devil. Like I say, ascribing imaginary vices to your opponents to bolster your argument just makes one look ridiculous and less credible when it comes to attacking their real ones. Its just common sense.
